Freeze Comeback

“Freeze Comeback”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

Our warm, mild weather has returned, and it is so nice to be back to normal, if not a little warmer than usual. I have been enjoying our high 60’s temperature after the recent cold. More freeze damage has shown up, but I don’t think that too many plants may be actually dead.

One sign that those subfreezing temperatures didn’t damage too much is our blooming camellias. Those buds that were still closed have opened with no damage.



With so much of our garden cut back by the cold weather, it is nice to have the camellias blooming as normal. They certainly are standing out this year with little or no competition after the freeze stopped other plants from blooming.

    Beautiful photo of your stunning camellia Jan! When I click on the image the colors are more vivid. So glad the cold snap did not damage these flowers. ;>) Carol

    Very pretty. Balmy temps and beautiful camellias can bring a smile to any gardener’s face.
